Gone are the days of counting Army as an easy win. Head coach Jeff Monken has the Black Knights competing and, more importantly, winning. Monken has recruited and developed players who are bigger, stronger and faster than past Black Knight squads. While Army isn’t much of a force through the air, Black Knights quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw has rushed for 867 yards on 119 carries for seven TDs. Three other players have run for 350 yards or more. Defensively, veteran linebacker Alex Aukerman has 38 tackles including 10 1/2 tackles for losses and five sacks. This Army-Air Force matchup promises to be a see-saw battle that goes down to the wire.
Saturday’s game kicks off at 1:30 pm MT and can be seen on the CBS Sports Network.
